Worked on the table today. I need to seal the top and paint the bottom. I was able to stand on the shelf after I added some support. Not sure if I can get it sealed this week or not. The 2nd pic shows the extension in the up position. $27.50 invested so far.

Nice job Ty! I like the flip up extension in front, it's another addition I'm planning to do to my table, I added them on the sides and it makes a difference spacewise, never seems to be enough room.

Cool design. I like the black legs contrasting the wood.

What holds the extension up?

It's 2 hinges that lock into place at a 45 degree angle. It's a pre existing feature with the island.

These are what I used on my side tables. Pretty heavy duty!

Love the storage! The extra lower shelf and fold out. Can never have too much. Is that a maple top?

I think, but not sure. It's 2 inches thick and solid. I need to get a finish on it before it goes outside. I worry about the butcherblock seperating if it isn't sealed.

First coat of sealer is drying. I can add the 2nd coat in 4 hours, and the 3rd tonight. It'll need 24hrs to set, and then it'll go outside and I can put the med egg in it. The space between the 2 shelves are exact to fit my Rubbermaid tubs that hold wood chunks.
